If you require a private letter to be written on your behalf which does not fall within normal NHS guidelines please download the attached form, complete and return to the surgery with the specified fee.
Patient Request Form
Please note that repeat prescriptions take a full 48 hours (2 whole working days) to prepare. Please remember that it is your responsibility to ensure that you hand your request into the surgery on time to avoid running out of your medication.
These should be made in writing (not by phone please).
Please use the other half of your prescription or fill in a request at the reception, and allow us 48 hours to process your request.
Alternatively you can ask your usual chemist to order these for you.
All patients on regular repeat prescriptions will be asked to see their Doctor / Nurse Practitioner at least once a year, so their medication can be reviewed.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
From 1 April 2019, the charges are:
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 12 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC. A 12 month Pre-payment certificate can be paid for via ten months direct debit instalments
